The Glorious Technocratic State of Imperium of Josh is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Imperator Josh with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.232 billion Imperials are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 1,143 trillion IOJ Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,183 IOJ Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, hit TV comedies "The Big Government Theory" and "Young Imperator Josh" have high ratings but low quality, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperium of Josh's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Imperium of Josh is ranked 37,817th in the world and 2,035th in Osiris for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,321.3 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
